Abstract: It is well known that acupuncture is effective for treatment of gastric disease in human. We have observed the effect of acupuncturing "Zhongwan" "Neiguan" "Zusanli" on fluorohistochemical changes of G cells of antral mucosa in 42 patients with gastric disease. The results show that after acupuncture treatment the amount of fluorescent 6 cells and the fluorescent intensity of gastrin in the G cells were obviously decreased in patients with duodenal ulcer, as compared with that before acupuncture treatment. However, the amount of G cells was increased by acupuncture treatment in patients with chronic atrophic gastritis. These data indicate the acupuncture may regulate c cell from abnormal to normal condition in gastric mucosa of gastric disease.
